About Gilead Bible Church

In Old Testament times, Gilead was known for a balm with healing properties (Jeremiah 8:22, 46:11, 51:8).
Bearing in mind that God’s people should be like the balm of Gilead—serving and healing the broken-hearted
with the love and redemptive gospel of Jesus Christ, five families and a pastor started Gilead Bible Church in
December 1992. Initially, the church met at the pastor’s home in San Ramon. When the church grew, worship
services were moved to a local elementary school. Initially, services and Sunday School classes were in Cantonese
only. As the needs of the congregation grew, services and classes in English were added. Through God’s blessing
and the faithfulness and generosity of many, the church purchased a property in San Ramon in 1997. After extensive
re-modeling, our first worship service in the new property was held on Easter Sunday 1998. Over the years, our
church have witnessed many dramatic demonstrations of God’s love, mercy and grace. Today, Gilead Bible Church
has worship services in English and Sunday School classes in Cantonese and English. We also offer weekly prayer
meetings, weekly fellowship meetings for older youth and young adults, monthly fellowship meetings for adults,
and several family events throughout the year. Our goal is to glorify God by helping to meet the spiritual needs
of the English-speaking and Cantonese-speaking Chinese in the San Ramon Valley and nearby communities.
